I've managed to melt a plastic spatula over the gas output

Customer Question

Hi, i've managed to melt a plastic spatula over the gas output in my oven. Which is a Leisure Rangemaster 110. All the oven does now is click away, it doesn't fully light up & if it does light up it is only in part & then generally goes out again. Is it fixable? Help.

Hi the burner (gas output) and the jets which control the flow of gas are replaceable parts, its generally not advised to clean them as inefficient burning can lead to increase in carbon monoxide etc.

Since this is a gas appliance you should use a registered gas safety fitter who can replace the part and check the plastic hasnt got anywhere else, and verify the appliance is safe to use again.

If you provide you post code I can recommend a suitable engineer in your area.
